    1. I am sorry to say, I just could not finish this book. The first 25 pages consisted of how and who transported Billy's body and the next 25 really had nothing to do with Cinder, just descriptions of what the people in town were doing. The book is named after Cinder, so I totally expected to hear more of her story within the first 50 pages. It was just too slow and way too descriptive about things that didn't matter. I wish it would've been as great as Billy, and it might have gotten better, but I [...]


    2. French was, at one time or another, a monumental inspiration in my life. On the other hand, I have always appreciated how artistically he mastered his craft; his true portrayal of the African American experience and culture; and the proper use of vernacular language in his writing that brings his characters to life to tell an alluring story. Cinder is a beautiful story.
